Top Destinations Tanzania

Introducing Tanzania

Tanzania is one of the unique destinations on the African continent that has yet to be discovered by many. It is a land of many wonders harboring an un-paralleled diversity of fauna and flora. Kilimanjaro, the highest permanently snow-capped free standing mountain in Africa, the exotic Islands of Zanzibar, the finest game sanctuaries of Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Ruaha, Selous and the Marine Park of Mafia Island are only but a few of the living examples.

The scenery, topography and very friendly people make Tanzania one of the best places to visit and promise the best wildlife photographic safaris on the continent. Tanzania indeed has it all Tanzania has 22 National Parks, 1 conservation area, 27 Game Reserves, and several Marine Parks, a breathtaking coast and Lake Zone and gently undulating highlands that are a hiker’s paradise.

Tanzania is the cradle of humanity, evolution and home of cultural enlightenment, with over 3.5 million year old hominid discoveries at distinctive paleoanthropological sites like Olduvai Gorge and Laetoli, and a rich mixture of tribes and cultures that exists today: Swahili, Afro- Europeans and Afro-Indians, together with over 120 native African tribes from Hadzabe (hunter-gatherers), Datoga to the colorful Maasai, all blended through a history of cattle rearing, farming, hunting, trading, slaving, love and war.
